It sounds like if you manually removed the chroot_dpkg stage file, which is
there to prevent this.

Well, the "remove" code simply reverses the steps taken in "install" so this
would just be a rather crude workaround for an unknown problem. As I see it,
the problem is either:
* The install action is broken in some way
* Stage handling is broken in some way
* "User" error, such as manual deletion of stage files or just a generally
Wouldn't it be better would be to fix the problem that caused lh_build to
exit in the first place? (Do you have build logs, etc.?)
